Not even we expected the inaugural Penicuik Market to whip up such a frenzy! Stallholders’ jaws dropped as thousands of shoppers stormed the precinct, forcing them to call for backup as their stock ran out before lunchtime! Local businesses reported increased sales, traders told us they’d had their best day for years and shoppers told us they’d never seen the precinct so busy. Market traders are usually wary of fledgling markets, but we’ve showed them that the Penicuik Market isn’t messing about. This means that our next market will have an even bigger and better selection of traders. Not bad for a first project!
